Traditionally, peri-urban health care facilities in Kenya have been unable to take advantage of leaps in medical technologies due to a lack of cash flow. These facilities have been restricted to an analog environment that does not meet clinical or patient needs.
Ilara Health focuses on digitizing the sub-Saharan primary healthcare ecosystem by deploying a digital operating system that enables clinic operations management, remote patient monitoring, clinical encounter documentation as well as the training of medical staff while being digitally connected to a suite of diagnostic devices enabling the automatic transfer of test results into its system.
The tech-enabled tools deployed do not rely on main power infrastructures and the system does not require constant internet access. Acknowledging the lower level of digital literacy in these areas, Ilara's team is dedicated to offering comprehensive training to staff in the use of the platform and tech-enabled diagnostics.
